How to Pay your Pledge with the Sale of Stocks
How It Works
You transfer appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares you have owned for one year or more to Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County
The Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support the program you wish to gift with your support.
You receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them.
You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer.
Giving appreciated stock could be more beneficial than giving cash.
